Daredevil star Charlie Cox has weighed in on his character not appearing in last year’s mega superhero film, Avengers: Endgame.
Charlie Cox, of course, portrayed Daredevil throughout the Netflix series’ three-season length and also appeared as a main character in The Defenders crossover. Sadly the show was canceled after its third season as part of a larger purge of the various original Marvel Netflix shows. It did, however, bare the question as to what would be next for these characters and if they would continue in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in some other capacity. Unfortunately, this does not seem to be the case.
As we all know, during Avengers: Endgame‘s climax, Doctor Strange came back into the fight with an entire army of heroes to back up Captain America against Thanos’ forces. Sadly, the Defenders characters were notably absent from this big climactic battle, much to the dismay to fans of the Netflix shows. Charlie Cox, however, seems to be okay with this.
While speaking to Comicbook.com, Charlie Cox weighed in on the fact that his character did not appear in Avengers: Endgame and expressed gratitude over how long he was able to play Daredevil as long as he was able to:
“No, I’m happy with what I got. Obviously all that stuff would be great, but look — I’m just an actor and I think it’s a lot more complicated than I could imagine and I understand that.”
